The Queen presented new colours to the 1st Battalion Welsh Guards at Windsor Castle yesterday. The last time the regiment received new colours from Her Majesty was back in 2006. The Prince of Wales – as Colonel of the Regiment – was present, along with the Duchess of Cornwall and Duke of Edinburgh.
The regiment joined The Queen for a garden party after the event.
